Why did democracy fail in Egypt but succeed in Tunisia? « Hot Air

Why did democracy fail in Egypt but succeed in Tunisia? « Hot Air: "The real lesson here is that Western-style multiparty democracy does not necessarily follow from an election, and certainly not from bombing a dictator out of power with no troops on the ground to fill the vacuum that kind of action creates.  Successful and free democracies have to spring from the internal culture of the nation; free and fair elections under the rule of law are the end result, not the initiating event. The actions of Morsi and his party demonstrate the folly of failing to understand that sequence."
